Type: Security Advisory

CVEs (cve.mitre.org): CVE-2010-3862

Details

Updated JBoss Enterprise Web Platform packages that fix one security issue
and various bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

The Enterprise Web Platform is for mid-size workloads, focusing on light
and rich Java applications. Web Platform is a slimmed down profile of the
JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.

A flaw was found in the JBoss Remoting component. A remote attacker could
use specially-crafted input to cause the JBoss Remoting listeners to become
unresponsive, resulting in a denial of service condition for services
communicating via JBoss Remoting sockets. (CVE-2010-3862)

Red Hat would like to thank Ole Husgaard of eXerp.com for reporting this
issue.

These updated packages include multiple bug fixes. Documentation for these
bug fixes will be available shortly from the Release Notes, linked to in
the References section.

As well, this update adds a new jbossws-cxf package to JBoss Enterprise
Web Platform 5.1, to provide the sources for jbossws-cxf. (BZ#645465)

Warning: Before applying this update, please backup the JBoss Enterprise
Web Platform "jboss-as-web/server/$PROFILE/deploy/" directory, along with
all other customized configuration files.

All users of JBoss Enterprise Web Platform on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4
and 5 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages. The JBoss server
process must be restarted for the update to take effect.
